Hi, I'm Angeline, The Dressmaker!
After years of frustration with the fashion industry and it's ability to turn a simple piece of clothing into a judgemental dictator of self worth, I decided to have a go at making things better. I quit my day job and went head first into studying dressmaking and the art of making a comfortable, beautiful garment. I knew that I wanted to make a garment that was easy to wear and easy to look great in, so I decided on a silhouette that I thought was nearly universally flattering and decided on a 'no zipper, no button' policy; all elastic waist and stretchy fabric, all the time! It took close to a year of studying and several hideous test garments made of old bed sheets, but the first Dressmaker collection was finally debuted in the winter of 2014.
I believe that clothing should be fun and flattering, not frustrating. We spend a lot of time worrying about whether we'll fit into something, when it's not us that needs to fit in.
Thank you for visiting The Dressmaker
